Today, China based tech maker Lenovo released the Vibe Z2 Pro smartphone for the Indian market with a pricing of Rs 32,999. This new flagship model comes with premium specifications including a Quad HD display and a slim build. While this handset is slated to debut on sale starting from October 6, it is sure that it will compete with the other flagship models that exist in the market. Here is a comparison between the Lenovo offering and Samsung Galaxy S5 to know how they stack up against each other.
Display and Processor
The Lenovo offering comes fitted with a much larger 6 inch display with a Quad HD screen resolution of 2560×1440 pixels. On the other hand, the Galaxy S5 is given a 5.1 inch Super AMOLED display that packs a FHD screen resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. Moreover, the latter is given the scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 3 coating to make it stronger. The Galaxy S5 has a Super AMOLED panel that will save the battery life significantly as compared to the IPS panel in its opponent that will render good viewing angles.
In terms of hardware, the Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro incorporates a 2.5 GHz Snapdragpn 801 quad-core SoC teamed up with Adreno 330 GPU and 3 GB of RAM. In comparison, Galaxy S5 comes stuffed with an octa-core Exynos Octa 5422 SoC. This is aided by Mali-T628 MP6 graphics units and 2 GB of RAM to handle the graphic handling and multi-tasking departments effectively. With a powerful quad-core processor and larger RAM capacity, the Lenovo offering sounds to be a powerhouse.
Camera and Internal Storage
On the imaging front, Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro includes a 16 MP rear camera with optical image stabilization, auto focus, dual LED flash and 4K Video recording. There is a front 5 MP selfie camera for video conferencing and capturing self portrait shots. Going by the comparison, the Galaxy S5 comes integrated with a 16 MP rear snapper with auto focus, LED flash and support for 4K videos. Also, there is a 2 MP front camera onboard. We can say the Lenovo phone excels in the selfie department with its larger front facing sensor.
While the Galaxy S5 arrives in 16 GB and 32 GB of native storage options, the Lenovo phone comes with only 32 GB of default storage space. However, the Vibe Z2 Peo loses the competition on grounds of additional storage support as the Samsung phone has a micro SD card support up to 128 GB of additional storage, whereas the Lenovo offering lacks an expandable card slot.
Battery and Features
There is a 2,800 mAh battery onboard the Galaxy S5 with the Ultra Power Saving Mode of Samsung. On the other hand, the Lenovo phone is powered by a mammoth 4,000 mAh battery but the advantage will be largely offset by more demanding hardwaer.
Both the smartphones run Android 4.4.2 KitKat and have standard connectivity features such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and NFC. However, the Galaxy S5 scores more with an IR Blaster, fingerprint scanner incorporated on the home button, heart rate sensor at the back and its water and dust resistant build with the IP67 rating.
